Actress Rooney Mara, who has been attached to the film since last year (15), will portray the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor's love interest in The Discovery, which is set in a world where the afterlife has been scientifically proven.

Charlie MCDowell, the son of actors Malcolm MCDowell and Mary Steenburgen, co-wrote the film and will also serve as director. Production is due to begin in Rhode Island later this month (Mar16), reports TheWrap.com.

Jason Segel Lands Second Young Adult Book Deal


Jason Segel The New York Times

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star previously teamed up with author Kirsten Miller to co-write Nightmares!, which became a staple on The New York Times bestseller list, and now he's joining forces with Miller, as well as publishers at Delacorte Press, for a trilogy titled Otherworld, which centres around a teen gamer who disappears into virtual reality.

"Connecting with the readers of the Nightmares! series at events has been a truly special experience for me, and I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to keep writing stories for these readers, and to grow with them into young adults with Otherworld," Segel said in a statement.

Nightmares! was released last year (14), and the final book in the trilogy arrives in September (16).

Neil Patrick Harris Jason Segel

Jason embarked on a new career as an author last year (14), with the launch of his Nightmares! horror stories, and now Neil has revealed he is busy working on a book franchise called The Magic Misfits.

"Reading and books have become a mainstay in my family, and they have gotten me thinking in a new way about the power of storytelling," he tells People.com.

The father of two is already a published writer after the success of his best-selling memoir, Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography, last year (14), but he admits writing for youngsters was a real joy.

Jason Segel Reveals All About Pal Paul Rudd's Toilet Pranks


Paul Rudd Jason Segel

The actor's I Love You, Man co-star Jason Segel spent a lot of time with Rudd while they were making and promoting the 2009 film and became a close friend - and the subject of the quirky funnyman's toilet tricks, like dropping his trousers and underwear to his ankles "like a 10-year-old boy" as he stands to pee.

Segel explains, "He does it at airports... Sometimes I'd walk into a bathroom and he would be standing there amongst other grown men with his pants and underwear down to his ankles like a little boy, peeing.

"Then he does another one when he slowly starts taking steps backward as he's using the urinal, so eventually he's quite far away. And then sometimes we're at a urinal together and there's other people around, and he'll just go like this (peers over the divider), 'Hey, nice penis!'"

Jason Segel Finds Happiness On An Orange Grove


Jason Segel

The Muppets star found a home in the California countryside while preparing to play reclusive writer David Foster Wallace in The End of the Tour, and stayed there.

And Segel admits there's very little about the hustle and bustle in Tinseltown that he misses.

Jason Segel Joined Book Club For David Foster Wallace Biopic Research


Jason Segel

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor portrays the Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer, who committed suicide in 2008, and decided to read Wallace's Infinite Jest to help him better understand his character.

On the advice of a local bookstore owner, Segel joined a book club to help him get through the long novel and he ended up gaining more of a perspective on Wallace, the novel and life lessons than he had initially thought.

He says, "Infinite Jest is this 1,000-plus page book. I read it for the movie; it's really hard to tackle. I luckily had some dudes at my local book store when I bought it, I asked them, 'How long should I give myself to read this?' and they were like, 'First time?' and I said, 'Yeah, first time,' and they said, 'Well, we do a book club if you would like to join us.' Every Sunday I would get together with these three grown men and we would talk about this book...

Jesse Eisenberg's 'effective' Non-friendship With Jason Segel


Jesse Eisenberg Jason Segel

Jesse Eisenberg found not being friends with Jason Segel ''effective'' for their new movie 'The End Of The Tour'.

The two actors had met only once before they started shooting the film - which focuses on real events involving Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky interviewing author David Foster Wallace before he committed suicide in 2008 - due to Jason's commitments to the TV show 'How I Met Your Mother'.

However, Jesse revealed he thought the fact he didn't know his 35-year-old co-star helped them portray the relationship of the characters in the film.

Jesse Eisenberg Says He Overwhelmed


Jesse Eisenberg Jason Segel

Jesse Eisenberg says he was exaggerating when he compared Comic-Con to ''genocide.''

The 31-year-old actor, who attended the annual entertainment convention in San Diego, California last Friday (10.07.15) to promote his upcoming film 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' alongside co-stars Ben Affleck, Amy Adams and Henry Cavill, came under fire for suggesting ''being screamed at by thousands of people'' there was similar to the deliberate killing of a large group of civilians, but now insists he was just overwhelmed by the experience.

Although he didn't apologise, the star has attempted to clarify his controversial comments, saying: ''I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that.
